Shahrukh Khan takes over Salman’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’?

As Salman Khan continues to refuse several lucrative projects, SRK seems to be taking on his rejected films, this time with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, we hear

Shahrukh Khan doesn’t seem to be in the mood to let go of any projects that could further strengthen his position in the industry. Just when we thought that he had recovered from the cricket and superhero setback, the actor surprises us by undertaking some new assignments. Well we aren’t just talking about any assignment; we are talking about films that have been turned down by none other than the RA.One actor’s arch-rival Salman Khan. The Dabangg actor was supposed to do the remake of Tamil film Kanchana but when his brother Sohail got a li’l more ambitious and started asking for the rights of the movie, he was instantly shown the exit door. Apparently, SRK is cashing in on this big time and has given his nod to this film, for now. Eons ago, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had approached Sallu bhai for his Bajirao Mastani which he was supposed to shoot with Salman and Aishwarya Rai, but couldn’t for obvious reasons. Now, we hear that the director has decided to revive the project and rope in SRK as the lead. And it looks like King Khan is giving this project a serious consideration. Well, hope you are listening Salman!Subscribe to me on YouTube

    Srif BAKWAS !!! As usual you guys are degrading SRK! It’s been cleared by SRK himself that He’s not doing Bajirao, even Sanjay Lela isn’t directing any film for him rather Sanjay will produce a film and will be directed by other director for SRK.
    And Sallu was discarded from Bajirao only for his Ill Temper and misbehavior with Sanjay which is his Characteristics.
    And Sallu is also doing 1 tha tiger which has been turned down by SRK, why you didn’t highlighted it?

    • Bollywood@kalakar

      Fake . Salman is on Top . Actual fact is that He will be occupaied for next 2 to 3 years for his next projects(ek tha tiger , No entry main entry ,Dabang 2 ,Sher khan 3D ,KIck,Subhas Ghai’s untitled movie,Partner2 ,so many countless,and Producers a& directers are known to this fact.Obvious choice is now Sarukh after salman since sarukh has very few movies in hand .And for your information – Yash chopra is not fool paying 33 crores to salman to sign this movie(Read Wikipedia).YRP could have paid 3 to 4 crores to sarukh to sign as he did before .Now Movie makers are diying to rope salman into their movies.But he can not sign all due to date overlapping .

      • vicky

        all these guy are welly known that srk is only one power who lives for longer and
        sallu aamir akki fans are fiew compare to srk fan.
        and these star cant comreally these sallu fan are true .according to them sallu is no1 and king khan is nothing then why u comparing each other…?
        this thing also similar to akki and aamir .there fans also comparing only with king khan.
        i really sorry to say thpete with king.they only know how to talk bad about king.

      • orisroo

        What’s FAKE? :O Didn’t you hear about the Fallout between Sallu and Sanjay with the comment about Gujarish last time?
        Anyway, I don’t think so he’s being paid Rs.33 Corer because Wikipedia is written by someone Like Us, not an official deceleration from YRF. And SRK charges 3/4 Corers?! This proves how much knowledge you posses. And SRK has very few movies in Hand? This proves how much Updated you are.
        I’m not denying the Fact that now-a-days, Sallu is having a Superb time and I also Like Him (Specially in Tere Naam,Wanted)and He’s also an iconic figure. But it also Fact that he isn’t as good in acting as his Figure. He’s getting Hits mainly from south masala action remakes which isn’t evolving him as an Actor even after 22 years.
        And who knows how long this good time will be with him? Remember, some years back, when everyone started roping on Akshay for his tremendous success in Comedies and He also had Big releases in hand. But what happened after few days?
        In this term, SRK is the most consistent actor (Amir does only 1 movie after 1-2 years) who’s last official flop was Paheli(in India and in Billu, He wasn’t the Lead). Beside, He’s also doing variety of characters with appreciation. And it also evident that, He’s the Largest Fan base from all over the World even bigger from Mr. Bacchan.
        So, don’t just act like a blind Fan, recognize the Facts, appreciate someone’s good (whoever is He/She) and criticize constructively.

        • Bollywood@kalakar

          Well said . I completly agree with you .As we all know Earlier days Sarukh khan was tied up with big banners like karan , yash , aditya where he got good movies and showcased his talent And gone are the days where salman was working for his friends , Relatives without thinking much about script. Now he is looking into scripts and rejecting if script is not good.Directers(exmp-Abhinav kashyap) are already declared in public that he is being the god of bollywood cinemas .
          Dont compare Salman with Akhsay .salman has huge fans which akki does not have . Salman has look, body which others dont have.More importantly , salman was not consistent giving hits in 90′s due to which his hugeee fans shared among others. Now when he started giving good performace , day by day his fans are increasing.As you said ,Even if he gives flop like (VEER film after blockbuster DABANG), he will never lose his fans.because 1 out of 10 is ok. He has unique on screen style which other can not even think of copying that’s why people love him Since from Maine pyar kiya .

          Now salman got the real taste of good movies. he is getting bigger and bigger day by day(No flops can stop him man)honestly saying our sarukh time is over(Accept it)which he failed to show(Poor acting) in RA.One(Very nice Film-Good script & good technology).

          Amir could have done the same like salman but he is a different character(Innovative guy).

          • orisroo

            Again, you showed your ignorance about film. Poor guy.
            It’s accepted all over, even by SRK’s Fan that Ra.1 had everything but not a Good script.Where every recognized reliable critics (not those who were intentionally spreading bad words about that movie like Raja Sen)pointed that SRK’s acting was Good but the film had a poor script, for the sake of debate, you’re pointing as Poor Acting!!!
            And Ra.1 wasn’t an Art film to show the best acting skill. Just give a look at the previous movie MNIK which wasn’t totally a mainstream Masala Bollywood film and SRK’s performance for which He got every critical acclaim. And you’re saying that He showcased his talent in Earlier days!?
            Abhinav kashyap might be said like that because he’s the director of Dabbang and of course he should praise his lead actor. But, He isn’t doing his next with his Bollywood God, right?
            And I don’t agree that Sallu is doing good movies. Ready was totally a CRAP, even Bodyguard was meaningless and boring till the last 15 minute’s twist. And He’s still doing his relative’s movies.Things are coming out well because of the Good time of Salman (believe or not) and the Latest trend of remaking South’s action masala. None of his Hits (Except Dabbang)has been critically acclaimed for good script or acting.I’m just telling that this Salman wave will continue till his Luck will be with him. Though he wont be damped and of course Hit will be come out but this trend of getting Hits only by action masala should be ended. Though you’re a Sallu fan, you’ve to accept that He hasn’t the capability of doing extraordinary characters like Amir, SRK, Hrithik that’s why he only has to do the same types of movies.
            And yes, Sallu has a huge Fan base now and increased than before, but it’s only India and some UAE portion based while SRK has Fan base not only from India but also all over the world.(If you read columns,articles and news regularly, you should have the information). Even, a survey showed that more people of the world knows SRK than Tom Cruse! Sallu is getting big success in recent times after early 90. So, if you compare the whole career of SRK and Salman with respect to success (by reconciling the value of money)you’d be seen that SRK is Far advanced than Sallu. And with respect to performance (acting)? Even no need to compare as Sallu even never got an Filmfare award for leading role (except Best Debut and Supporting role).
            So, if you take account these two parameters (Success+performance), SK will always be lagging FAR behind than SRK. This isn’t to degrade SK, rather it’s a FACT.

    • AR

      SRK might have rejected EK Tha Tiger because he doesn’t look like Tiger but a Monkey. That’s why the character of the film doesn’t suit him. According to Kabir Khan, the director of the film, Salman is the perfect cast for the role. So far, SRK has done four film which were turned down by Salman. They are Baazigar, Devdas, Chakde. Even OSO was first offered to Salman. Get your facts right.

      • rfg

        thats why now movie name has been
        changed to ek tha bunder..

          Salman Khan is one of the most natural actors of
          This generation. He definitely is the most charismatic star.
          He never gets his due. His fans know this and so do others.
          Anyone with half a brain cell would know that. Next time think before
          You write.
          srk looks likes animal complex

          • Mister

            You guys are all sick, mentally challenged. There is only one King, SRK and he rules. He is beyond any comparison. He is the true King. Sallu is an average actor.

        Oh My God, I can’t believe the ignorance of this guy called AR! How could he say that OSO was offered to Salman when SRK is the producer of the film???Damn, India is really incredible! It gives birth to genius like SRK and at the same time dumb like this guy! Get your facts, SRK is a international icon with a fan base more than any hollywood or bollywood actor with a net worth more half a billion dollars! (You may not know how much is a billion in IRS, please google it!)

        • krrish

  • Zkay

    King Khan will always be number 1. Where were Salman Khan and Aamir Khan in the 90′s while King Khan gave back to back hits. Look at Shah Rukh’s performance s in Devdas or kal ho naa ho, Swades. Can Salman Khan even try to perform in films like these? Look at the qualtiy of the films Salman does in comparison to SRk. Again, no comparison. Shah Rukh has worked with the biggest filmakers in India today Rakesh Roshan, Yash Chopra, Subhash Ghai, Karan Johar, Ashutosh Gowariker, Aditya Chopra and performed in evey single film.

  • Ra.1

    May be once SRK was king due to some mistake made by bhai because he was not sincere and would have given priority to work with the closest personnel despite being the poor script but now i am sorry to say that SRK lost his regime to MR. SALLU BHAI. At present sallu bhai is the ruler and most powerful actor khan of our Tinsel Town, We know it U guys should know it.

    Don’t tension okey. You are know that Shahrukh khan always do different projects as well don’t worry if the last project of Ra 1 give mixed response from public review. You know Shahrukh khan is the big entertainer and a big actor in the Hindi film industry like Bollywood.
    INSHAHALLAH if ALLAH ALMIGHTY give the power to shahrukh khan then next no next time rocks shahrukh khan.
    Salman khan is a actor you salman work on remake movies and that it and hit.
    Then result is that you know shahrukh khan is great actor and king og bollywood.

      Ha! Ha!, good joke man, I am sure everyone gets it that with so many FLOP/.Disastrous movies in his career Salman, ought to have been out of the industry by now, but he got a second life in the 2009 onwards starting with Wanted, Dabanng …etc.
      Let’s see how long his next innings last, well if he comes down to giving crap movies like Ready & Bodyguard (yes I said crap event though they were hits only because of Salman’s new found “super star” status, which the media along with Salman and family & friends have conceptualized), he will go back into oblivion again, I never considered Salman to be a good actor he still isn’t, I guess he making the best of his new stylized presentations, lets see how long it lasts.

  • Ria

    Simple fact …SRK has grown and mature every day in last 20 years with the type of movies he is doing, while Salman still doing same stuff and becoming even more immature with movie and script.. One other fact….SRK has given hits for last 2 decades and he was compared with momentum actor (BIG B, Hrithik, Aaami, Akshay etc) …so for Salman vai… go enjoy your stardome for the time being. SRK has been the undisputed KING of Bollywood and he will reamin the till his LAST DAY!!!!!!

    Why ask for comments when you are not publishing the positive ones? Is this how your Business operates? If this is the way it operates, then your news items will not be taken seriously, people will boycott your website and your Business. This is my advice to you.
